Reports are out claiming that Manchester United playmaker Juan Mata is set to return to Stamford Bridge for the first time since his move to Old Trafford last year.
Third-placed United travel to west London to face Premier League leaders Chelsea and Mata is leaving no stone unturned in his preparation for the game.
“Needless to say that it’s going to be a very special game for me,” he said. “I have already played against Chelsea in the first half of the championship, but going back to Stamford Bridge for the first time will bring me plenty of good memories.
“The day I arrived to this great club I wrote, ‘Gratitude is the memory of the heart’. On Saturday it will be nice to meet former team-mates, fans and friends. I keep good memories of them and I wish them the best.
“Obviously, our intention is to get the three points again and we will try from the kick-off until the final whistle.
“The best thing is that we get to this game in a very good moment, with confidence, but we are aware that we must perform at our best level if we want to beat Chelsea.”
